    Basically I get some rich HTML emails that do not display correctly on my EVO. Is there some client that I can use that will display them properly?

    Here is a sample email that I cannot view on my evo:

    Tocuhdown does exchange and html pretty well. Not sure if it could handle the example you showed, but I guess it's just images, right ?

    it seems that the native HTC client is set to plain text and it is greyed out under menu | more | settings | send & receive | message format . I tried to set up touchdown to see if it'd open that email but I get this error when trying to sync:
    "your web browser is configure not to run script or doesn't supoprt script in Web pages. Check your browser settings or use a browswer that can run script."

    Thanks
    Dave

    Is it exchange 2003? I believe exchange 2003 active sync only supports plain text.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    I can confirm that w/ Exchange 2003 on the server side, no HTML, whether on blackberry, evo, or otherwise.

    I have a SBS 2008 Server (w/Exchange 2007) and I have no problems receiving HTML-formatted messages correctly.

    I'm trying to come to a solution on this as I am havin the same issue. My company runs Exchange 2003 and all iPhones show html emails just fine, however, when trying to view the same email via the HTC EVO no luck, simply plain text.

    Me too. Firm has Exchange 2003, and all employees have iPhones except me, I went with the EVO. All the iPhones display HTML email fine, but my EVO does not and I haven't been able to figure out a way to do it.

    I downloaded Touchdown. It shows HTML for my email (Exchange 2003 server) while the native Exchange Sync did not.

    Downloading TouchDown

    Are you sure that your Touchdown account is using ActiveSync??

    The ActiveSync protocol with Exchange 2003 does NOT support html. However, you could use IMAP.

    ... Under settings it says ActiveSync ONLY

    How can I check if it is using IMAP? The server I am connecting to is our active sync server.

    This doesn't sound right to me. My firm has an Exchange 2003 server and all the attorneys use (hate to say the dreaded word) iPhones. The activesync client receives HTML email just fine on the iPhone, so this doesn't sound like a limitation on the Exchange server side.

    update: installed Touchdown, set it to connection "Activesync only" and the checkbox for HTML email is checked. I appear to see HTML email's correct with the exception of the firm's signature block (which has a graphic which is not being displayed). Kind of pricey for a mail app though?

    Again on my Evo

    Native ActiveSync = No HTML
    Touchdown Activesync = HTML

    Touchdown reports my active sync settings
    IIS/6.0,1.0,2.0,2.1,2.5

    When you zoom out does the signature show correctly? Just curious. I notice some HTML emails format better (naturally) as I zoom out.

    I had this same problem today. I was able to get it to view html using a pop3 account setup by not with the EAS. This is what I did to get it to work for hotmail.

    So I just did a manual setup with
    Protocol: POP
    Email address: username@hotmail.com
    Username: username@hotmail.com
    Password: ......
    POP Server: pop3.live.com
    Security Type: SSL
    Server Port: 995

    SMTP settings
    Username: username@hotmail.com
    password:.....
    SMTP Server: smtp.live.com
    Security Type: TLS
    Server Port: 25
